Former US criterium champion Kirk O’Bee has been hit with a lifetime ban from the sport, incurring the ban after a positive test for EPO plus proof that he had purchased doping substances on multiple occasions.
Awesome. I feel great. I’m kidding.
The panel also disqualified O’Bee’s results back to Oct. 3, 2005, including his 2007 national criterium championship, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced Wednesday.

USADA said O’Bee will have to return all winnings and titles he won since October, 2005. That would include overall wins and several stage wins at the 2007 and 2008 Nature Valley Grand Prix, stage wins at the Fitchburg Longsjo Classic and Cascade Classic, victory at the 2009 Kelly Cup and the 2007 crit title.
